You just took the first step. I wish you continued success along your quest for self-assertiveness.

Cause in my dreams it's always there
The evil face that twists my mind
And brings me to despair.

Sometimes we have to choose our battles. If it's important to you, take a deep breath. Pretend you're someone else and just say it! Sooner or later, you won't have to pretend. You WILL be that person who speaks up!

(So are you telling us that you wish you'd been able to yell down the mall at that guy and say 'Hey Mister! Come back here with my.......')  LOL

PDV.....ROFL.....thanks for the pep talk...ROLF....and the laughs. My sister was stretching the truth just a little...it wasn't stuck on the man's shoe...it was....well...we never did find it!!!ROLF.


As for the other matter at hand. I wish I could tell the whole mess to you all...but it is much to hard on my heart.
Maybe one day without thinking about it too long, I will just say what I have bottled up inside and let the chips fall where they may. Who knows?    Luv Ya !!

Chris..You're 'rolling on the laughing floor'?

Seriously, I know what you're talking about.  I think it was how we, you and I, were raised that keeps you especially from just blurting it out. (stiff upper lip, the show must go on, and all that rot).  

I finally learned how to 'spit it out' the hard way when the doc told me if I didn't get this crap off my chest I wouldn't be around to enjoy life for a long time.  

Now, you and I both know that we are going to live to a ripe old age like grandad and live together by the sea, and finish writing our stories.

Soooo...like I said last night..speak up.
Let the chips fall where they may...the ones involved will be SO surprised, they will be speechless ..and then they will 'get over it'.
Love you tons!

*Oh...and PDV...it was on the man's shoe!
It had to be..because that's the way the story goes*

NancyLee - yes the doc has told me the same thing, yet I just can't do it. I wish I could, but, knowing how little I am cared about anyway....I don't think it would matter if I had a sky writer say it for me.


Cpat. Lol. I wish it was a simple case of losing my voice. Hugs.

Now, this gives ME something to look forward to.

And Chris?  Sometimes we just have to accept the "deaf ears" in our life, and go forward.  Right?  [You know I'm right, I see you nodding your head... ]

Chris...
we learn to speak as children by hearing and imitating... if you find now you have problems speaking for yurself in some situations it is because you get scared and would not hurt or have to deal with the repurcussions of saying what it is you think.. I know how that is.. and I know how it is to eat your words or what you have tried to say.. so there is no easy answer..except.. picking your battles and learning.. just like we did as babies..

Sunshine....yes, I am nodding and smiling at you.

Cpat. You are so right. As a child if I had spoken up to my elders....oooooh, it would have been a sin !!
But, also, I really dislike hurting another person's feelings and have them think even worse of me. This is so difficult to explain without telling the whole story. But, I do appreciate the helpful tips. Luv ya gang!!

"knowing how little I am cared about anyway....I don't think it would matter if I had a sky writer say it for me."

Chris..I don't believe this to be true for a second.
I think this person has some very major personal problems, and beneath it all cares very  much.

Hey!  You know you have family down here who loves and cares for you!

Sharon....have you lost anyone....whom you held dear, to your speaking up to them? That's what I am afraid of. Seeing as the relationship is hanging by a thread now, if it hasnt' already snapped. Hugs!

Chris, I don't see how anybody could get mad at you, whether you spoke up or not. I believe that if you did speak up, you would say it in such a loving way that they wouldn't be mad.
Hugs, you
